Seattle Mariners outfielder Eric Wedge told reporters -- including Greg Johns of MLB.com -- that the team is expecting to get outfielder Michael Saunders back from the disabled list next week. Saunders is set to head out on a minor league rehab assignment with Seattle's Triple-A club over the weekend. If all goes well during the rehab stint, Saunders should be activated next week. The outfielder has been on the DL since earlier this month with a sprained right shoulder. He suffered the injury during an April 11 contest against the Houston Astros, and he ultimately exited the game. Soon after he was placed on the DL. While Saunders' rehab is heading in the right direction, he'll still require a few days in the minors before returning, according to Wedge. "Saunders definitely is headed in the right direction," Wedge said Wednesday. "He had a real good day today playing catch. We'll go home tomorrow and let the doctors look at him again and potentially send him out as early as Friday. We want him to play for a couple days and hopefully get him back, whether it be this weekend or it could be as late as Monday." Veteran Endy Chavez has been filling in for Saunders. The Mariners also recently lost Franklin Gutierrez to a hamstring injury. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Seattle Mariners stumble in road trip through Texas

As the Mariners departed for Texas, they were coming off a solid home stand where they went 4-6.  Texas was not as kind to the Mariners as they were swept by the Rangers and lost two out of three to the Astros, their second series loss to the Astros this season.  At 8 up and 15 down, the Mariners are hardly at the stage they hoped to be at this early in the 2013 season.  After...

Seattle Mariners show little hope for a turnaround this season

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge is mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore. At least that's how he seemed after his team's 10-3 loss to the Houston Astros Wednesday night. That gave the Mariners their second series loss of the season to the Astros, and it's only April. Houston was generally considered to be the worst team in MLB — if for no...

Injuries, slumps weighing on M's

The result is that the Mariners, after going 22-11 in spring training, are one of baseball's biggest disappointments in April...

Mariner GM's time may be up soon

Time. General managers in trouble always want more time. Time for prospects to develop. Time for injured players to heal.

Inadvertent evacuation message at M's ballpark

The Seattle Mariners say a pre-recorded announcement that requested fans to evacuate Safeco Field before Thursday's Mariners-Angels game was a mistake. About two hours before the 7:10 p.m. game time, a technician pressed the wrong button and the unnecessary evacuation announcement was heard. There was no follow-up to the announcement, but there were few people in the ballpark...

AL-Only Buy Or Sell

We are nearing the time of the fantasy baseball season where you can sell on player who has had a hot start for maximum value, and still purchase struggling stars for a reasonable price. With that idea, here are several hitters you should be trying to ship out or import.

Guti's Injury Calls For Others To Step Up

Photo Credit: Pat Sullivan/Associated Press Franklin Gutierrez has been known to be a fragile player over the past couple years, not even coming close to playing a full season. But in his first two years in Seattle, he sat out only 19 games total, yet in his last two he has missed over 100. At this point, Seattle fans have simply begun to expect an injury from Guti, and this...

Changing Approaches: Youkilis, Young, and Seager

It’s still April and the samples are still small, but we’re over 10 percent of the way into the 2013 season and a few statistics are beginning to stabilize. Approach-related statistics in particular are starting to reach the point where the regression can be a little less aggressive.
